It’s been a while…God is keeping me busy..with…life. Somehow, content, hopeful, loved. Joy peaks out under the little things. Big things aren’t unimportant, but there are just bigger things that are more important. Meanwhile, this song is stuck in my head. Cause I don’t wanna lose you now I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me The vacancy that sat...
something to think about
-supjchwa: How to Avoid Jealousy We all know what it is like to be green with envy. We all struggle with jealousy at some point in life. Let’s be honest. How often do we look at another person and covet what we perceive to be their success? How many of us are not content to serve God with the gifts He has given us while whining about the fact that others have the gifts we want. We convince...
There is no reason To let it be the way it is. To let it float away, in the encumbering mist. Of static noise and empty glasses, You’re turning away, leaving empty facets. I’m drowning in disregard, in complacency. It’s not getting the best of you, nor the best of me. But too often I find myself with you, Loosing control together in spiraling, riveting truth. These is no...
But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy...

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. Romans 14:17-20 A few verses before this one, Paul is talking about not causing...

I have a midterm in the morning...
Real Sam, right here. I was talking to an old friend. She has an internship of a lifetime. A shot at my dream job. And so my mind started to wander…what happened to me? Where’s the drive? Achievement and success? I want it! The career path I always dreamed of. Little girls dreamt about their wedding day. I never did. I dreamt about the office I would sit in, the table I would write...
A Time for Everything.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time...

valkyerie: 1 Samuel 16:7 Praise God that my outward appearances don’t dictate how He loves me.
Love is the overflow of joy in God that gladly meets the needs of others. God’s grace → our joy → overflow of our joy → desire to give So simple, yet I can’t get it right. Love stems from God’s grace. Love stems from God’s grace. Love stems from God’s grace. Love is the overflow of joy—in God! It is not duty for duty’s sake or right for...
Majesty, forever I am changed by Your love. In the beauty of Your Majesty.– Majesty (aka my favorite song ever)
Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted...– C.S. Lewis ”We often settle for selfish desire and deprive ourselves of “infinite joy.” We are all too pleased with the meager pleasures we get and say “NO” to greater, higher, infinite pleasure.” - Art Lindsley

…that God is our king. It’s a gift to know Him. To even know His name. In a moment, He “out-graced” us by giving us everything that is important. Major on the major and minor on the minor.
God loved you first. And He’ll never stop.

I didn’t study. Nope. But that’s okay, because allowing God to use me is so much more rewarding. What is sleep? What is studying? I only know the faithfulness and greatness of God. :P Ok fine I know what studying is…gotta do it tomorrow.
Eat an entire pint of ice cream right out of the carton? Check. (not all at once though that’s just too much…) real life goals being accomplished here people.
